Learning through Entangled Legacies in History Education and Cultural Heritage


The 2016 Summer School was organised together with the History Teachers Association of Montenegro (HIPMONT). Each country has their own legacy of the past and when these legacies get entangled, teaching history becomes more and more difficult. However, taught correctly multiple legacies can teach more than one single legacy and help to create multi-perspectivity. The 2016 Summer School addressed the issue: Learning through entangled legacies in history education and cultural heritage.

The Summer School sought to combine educators working in history and heritage through interactive workshops on innovative on-site learning. In previous years the organisers put great care in setting up a rich in content and intensive programme to which a wide range of local and international experts contributed. This year was no different, and the EuroClio Secretariat worked hard to compile an attractive programme, to which representatives of national and transnational educational authorities  contributed.

It was a capacity-building event which provided a transnational transfer of knowledge and experience.  Through lectures, workshops, discussion groups and study visits, participating history and heritage educators were stimulated to implement innovative teaching practices in their classroom and/or museum/site/institute and to work towards a framework for a common approach for dealing with history. Participants improved their knowledge of cultures and got acquainted with new educational contents, services, and methods.
